Relief Society Magazine Digital Project

Relief Society Magazine Digital Project The purpose of the Relief Society Magazine, which began in 1914, was to unite women in a bond of common interest, to educate, and enlighten as well as to be an outlet for Mormon women’s own writing. It was the official publication of the Relief Society organization for 57 years. The Relief Society minutes of October 1, 1914 state that the magazine will consist of literary, artistic, and practical articles, designed to improve our minds and beautify our homes. It mentions sections on genealogy, health, cooking, clothing, books, arts, and amusements. The contents were modified over time to meet changing circumstances. It also published fiction, poetry, and plays written by Mormon women. The main categories throughout the years include Lessons, Articles, Fiction, Poetry, Editorials, Recipes, Notes from the Field, Images, and Advertisements. The magazine ceased in 1970 when the Church-produced magazines were combined into the three current ones (Ensign, New Era, Friend) for different age groups. The Relief Society Magazine is an amazing treasure for historical and social research about LDS women. Please visit the Relief Society Magazine Index to locate items in the various categories.
